The City of North Battleford Fire Department responded to a structure fire on Friday, December 18th, on the 1400 block of 101st Street just before 10:00 pm.
Upon arrival, fire personnel found signs of a working structure fire and heavy black smoke exiting the building through the roof. The first crew made a successful initial interior attack and contained the fire to the upper floor of the dwelling. Due to many voids in the roof area of the home, extensive work was needed to fully extinguish the fire as an extension through the roof joist system had occurred.
All occupants were accounted for upon arrival of the North Battleford Fire Department.
The nature of the fire is believed to be human-caused at this time.
